Can you guess where we are?
This was the view from our hotel... our back porch went right out to Table Rock Lake! It was gorgeous.
I didn't manage to get any pictures of Stephen participating in his favorite activity while we were on vacation - SWIMMING! There was an indoor heated pool, and while we were gone, Stephen managed to learn the Doggy Paddle. We went to the pool several times a day on some days, so he got in a lot of practice. He also started using his iPad to tell us when he needed to go to the bathroom, which was a big step for him!
Since returning home, Stephen has been back at school, and doing very well. Tomorrow is his last day of school, and then he will be a pre-kindergarten student! He will be in a classroom with typical students and some extra supports for his needs, which will be a great opportunity for him to have some good peer models. We are still trying to decide if he will be riding the bus TO school next year (but not home - I like to hear from his teachers about how his day went). He will be going 5 days a week next year, instead of 4, and since it's not his home school, it's a little farther to drive. We'll make a decision this week, though!
